Well, for me, it's Shakespeare time again. I have to write the music for 'A Midsummer Night's Dream' ('Shakespeare -4- all' Hong Kong Kids production).
I did Macbeth last year, which was easy because it was very action-packed and I was working with Chinese opera (leading to strong direction). This year I have to think of something a bit more mellow.
My director has asked me to write the overture first!!! She has given me a load of direction about the themes required.......
What is your favourite overture? as I need to find a way of "glueing" my themes together into a decent sounding overture, therefore I want to do some listening.
I realize that this is an extremely subjective topic but I would like to hear from you all the same.
